FM13 Real Names Fixes File - FINAL - v1.4 [21/3/2013] for 13.3 patch
This file is intended for FM13.3, and will need to be re-applied if/when patches/updates are released to ensure full compatibility. This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are re-installed when patches come out.

Magrippinho very helpfully created a YouTube video on how this file should be installed. Some of the contents are different - but the procedure is identical.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install this file:

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ db \ 1300 
AND
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ db \ 1330 
MAC
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2013 \ Data \ db \ 1300
AND
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2013 \ Data \ db \ 1330
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the folder above

Step 3: Copy the dbc, edt and lnc folder from this download into the folder mentioned in step 1.

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2013
Step 5: Open the folder named "editor data" contained therein. If it does not exist, then create it.

Step 6: Keeping the folder in step 5 open, go back to the file you downloaded and open the folder named "editor data files".

Step 7: Copy the 30 files in the folder from step 6 into the folder mentioned in step 5.



To check if the file is working, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase, and they should be renamed to Champions League and Europa League respectively. If you are in the middle of a save-game, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not instantly.
Discussion
I got to stage five and had to create the folder 'editor data' because it wasn't there. Then, when I get to stage six where I'm supposed to open a folder called 'editor data files', I can't see one in the other folder (The one that I pasted 'dbc', 'edt' and 'Inc' into) called 'editor data files'.

I've had a look around and it's nowhere.

What should I do?

Thanks in advance.
Watch Magrippinho's video, linked to in the installation instructions at the top of this, and every, page.

mons, Penultimate line Shenxin should be Shanghai Shenxin

And another question you have missed, If I delete other languages except english (Football Manager 2013\data\languages), then will the fixes work fine which you changes into other languages?

«This comment has been edited»
Could you confirm something for me please:

"This file is intended for FM13.1, and will need to be re-applied if when patches/updates are released."

Does that mean that whenever new patch hits it's going to cause for the real names, media, etc. to stop working and the only way to fix that is to start a completely new game? Just wondering because I always start one save that will last till the next FM game, or even longer.

That screenshot was for the beta version of this file, and the Shanghai issue was fixed with v1.0.

Do not delete any language files for God's sake. The file is in English because the entries are in English and they will be displayed in English.

I insert this proviso as each new patch re-installs the files which disable the German national team. In order to avoid having to specify which files have to be deleted and which to be retained (and therefore confusing a lot of the users), I just recommend re-installing the files again. This does not necessitate starting a new game to take effect and the changes effected at the start of your current save game will remain
U.S.A. and north Ireland are not traslated in italian.

The text in this file can be displayed in any language supported by FM. Some people suggested some language changes earlier in the thread and I've added them to the files, but I don't know if they're working for them.

If you want me to change something into Italian, tell me the competition and its name in Italian and I'll see what I can do.

This also applies to awards, nations, club names etc.

Is it possible to get the City, Club and Stadium names file to work, without using the editor data file?
It works fine for the portuguise teams, but somehow i can't make it work with the italian teams.
The Champions League and Europa League are still referred to as the ECC and EC. D:

Open the file with notepad and replace all instances of

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE"


with

"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE"


You will lose all nicknames in your current save game, however.

The file which changes this needs to be applied before starting a new game.

The Ramsdens Cup in Scotland has an apostrophe in it, (ie Ramsden's) when it doesn't have one IRL. Only thing I've noticed, and may even have been rectified with updates. Thanks for the good work.
hey dude.. i dont have those files in steamapps folder.. i just have winui.gcf... what can i do ? thanx

Hi Mons,

i have a question. The awards are either on their home language on in English. So, normally i would edit your file and translate some international awards to Portuguese, but, do you want to create language dependent translations?

Sorry if you already addressed this issue, i'm just asking because if you wanted that, instead of replacing i could just create the Portuguese versions and then share them, so you could use them in the future, but this would massively increase the file size (i think) if you would then translate all awards to all languages, but would help me when FM14 comes, then i would already have them done
Please change the following lines in the Competitions and other Fixes.lnc.

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 27 "Regionalliga Süd" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 27 "Regionalliga Süd" ""
into
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 27 "Regionalliga Südwest" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 27 "Regionalliga Südwest" ""

and

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 91107111 "Regionalliga Süd/Südwest" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 91107111 "Regionalliga Süd/Südwest" ""
into
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 91107111 "Regionalliga Bayern" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 91107111 "Regionalliga Bayern" ""

These are 2 of the 5 new created 4th leagues in German football, the other 3 are correct.
Thanks mons.
Btw. isn't Fiorentina supposed to be called ACF Fiorentina, and not A.C.F. Fiorentina?

They should be there

Try a search within the Steam folder, for a folder named edt. Are you sure that the game is fully installed?

cachirro, if you want to make some changes to awards, competitions or nations as others have proposed, just send me the relevant code and I'll add it to the next version, and all future ones, with great pleasure. It really won't increase the file size as text files are very easily compressible

I believe you know how to add the code, but if you don't drop me a PM and we can discuss this





harryhausen, that change was proposed a short while ago and will be changed for the next version

Sorry to sound patronising, but the file changing this is in the editor data folder - have you added the relevant file?

I'm italian and yes, it is ACF Fiorentina.

Think for yourself. Question Authority.
Hi

Do you know why the changed name doesn't work for the English League Cup. I've applied the changes and it comes up as Capital One Cup to start with - but then whenever I reload the game, the name changes back to 'Carling Cup.' Do you know why this could be the case?

Thanks
can you add mediafire download of the FM13 Real Names Fixes File ?
Could Lille's full name be changed? Right now its LOSC, but it should be LOSC Lille Métropole

Are you perhaps using some other editor data files?

I'm not at my PC so can't change right now - but I'm pretty sure it's already in the latter format. Do remember that the file changing this has to be applied before starting a new game. This is to avoid losing the club's nicknames.

If you've started a new game already, you can still change the name by using this workaround, which will however mean the particular entry's nickname is lost:
a) opening the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file in the lnc folder with notepad
b) find the France list and add a new entry for Lille, by copying the below text

"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 858 "LOSC Lille Métropole" ""


c) they will thus display in this manner in your save game

how can i change the languege in italian? somebody can told to me?

It's a bit too complex to explain without risking confusing you.

Tell me what you want to change to Italian, by giving me UIDs and proposed names in Italian, and I'll do them for you.
Hey,

Could someone please help me to find the folder? I recently got a MacBook, but i simply cannot find that file, when I try this chflags nohidden ~/Library/ absolutely nothing happens. Can someone show me with pictures what I am doing wrong?

When I go in to the terminal i paste chflags nohidden ~/Library/ then press enter, is that correct? Or what am I doing wrong?

Playing FM 2013 with grey players is absolutely not an option, I would rather just not play.

Cheers

Marius
Dont worry,

I fixed using the supplement under the main article.

Now everything is perfect.

Thanks for an amazing site, you really do make FM a much better experience,

Cheers

Marius
mons, i've upload my (yours) modified files to here

can you get the changes into your files?

it's just small changes, because the damn game is unplayable to me right now, my mate can't connect to the network game, gets crash everytime, and i don't play solo games since...a long time.
